Make it Yourself...Omelettes

We think the best omelets are oven-style…perfect for making them for a group for brunch or Sunday morning breakfast.  Here are two of our favorites…
From Sue -
This is a nice brunch dish from the “Land O Lakes Flavors of Spring" cook booklet.  It’s an easy way to fix eggs without the last minute rush.  Do check the dish before the shortest time so your eggs aren’t overcooked.                    
 Cheese and Mushroom Oven Omelet
  2        Tablespoons  Butter
  8        Ounces  Fresh Mushrooms or 4 oz. canned
  1/3     Cup  Milk
  6        Large  Eggs
  2        Tablespoons  Flour, All-purpose
  1/8     Teaspoon  Pepper
  6        Ounces  Cheddar Cheese -- shredded (1 1/2 cups)
  6        Slices  Bacon -- cooked and crumbled (1/4 cup)

Heat oven to 350°.  In 10" skillet, melt butter; add mushrooms.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender (4-6 minutes).  Drain.  Set aside.
In medium bowl, combine milk, eggs, flour and pepper.  With wire whisk, beat until frothy.  Stir in 1 cup cheese, bacon and mushrooms.
Pour egg mixture into buttered 9" square baking pan; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until eggs are set in center.

From Myrna-
This is one way we enjoy eggs. I find it much easier than making one for each person.
We do however disagree on how long it should bake so I am giving a range of baking time. I prefer the shorter time and Bettie likes it a little firmer. I would start with the shorter time and than add more if needed.  The recipe came from Kraft.
